The Passport Project: Two Sisters Ditch Middle School for a Life-Changing Journey Around the World

When 14- and 12-year-old sisters embark on a global family journey, they must navigate new customs, cultures, religions—and detainment in a communist country—while also navigating adolescence. A true, coming-of-age adventure.

***WARNING! Read at your own risk. Readers have reported being infected with the travel bug. There is no cure.***


Delaney’s eighth-grade dreams crumble when her parents announce their “global family field trip.” While her younger sister, Riley, is thrilled to ditch middle school for world school, Delaney cringes at trading parties and friends for a passport and 24/7 family time. 

While Riley researches bungee jumping and packing tips, Delaney must decide whether to continue the silent treatment or embrace this adventure.

What about school? Forget science and math, the only way to pass this class is to survive:

  • scam artists
  • monster cockroaches
  • deadly stingers
  • projectile vomiting
  • public nudity
  • toilet catastrophes

…and those lessons aren’t in their textbooks. Each passport stamp is a real-life social studies lesson in new religions and new rules—resulting in sooo many awkward moments. But when an itinerary mistake puts the family’s freedom at risk, they learn the most valuable lesson of their lives

Trapped together in their parents’ mid-life crisis, will the sisters survive this global adventure? And will non-stop family time turn them into friends? Or enemies?
